Today we are talking about service to others: Why do we do it? What gets in the way? We discuss the difference between proactive giving and being “voluntold” to give to a certain cause. We also cover intentional giving, protecting boundaries while giving back, and adopting a mindset of serving. We end our conversation by reviewing different ways that we can get involved in our communities and the advantages of giving back.
Do try this at home:
Tap into your why. What are your values and how can you incorporate these into your acts of service so they are more meaningful and authentic to you?
Ask yourself, “How can I serve” and see what comes up. Thinking about service to others can de-center us and help us think about the bigger picture.
Invite some ease around service. Service does not have to be hard or another source of resentment. Service can be enjoyable and it is ok to shift to a different type of activity where your gifts and talents are more in line with the need.
